  • The Changing Image of Goya: Recent Discoveries and New Questions

    October 7, 2014
    Renowned international Goya scholar, Janis Tomlinson, presents The Changing Image of Goya: Recent Discoveries and New Questions as the first of a series of events heralding the opening of the first major North American exhibition on the Spanish painter in twenty-five years, opening at the MFA October 12th. Entitled Goya: Order and Disorder and co-curated by renowned Goya scholar and Wheaton alum, Stephanie Stepanek '65, this exhibition's catalogue includes numerous essays by Dr. Tomlinson. As Director of University Museums at the University of Delaware and previously Director of Exhibitions and Cultural Programs at the National Academy of Sciences (1999-2003), Dr. Tomlinson not only comes to us with an expertise on "all things Goya" but also with a broad range of knowledge in the museum field.

  • VAP David Mayo, fall 2014

    How I Leveraged a Great Career from a Fine Arts Degree featuring David Mayo

    September 23, 2014
    It has been said that fine or liberal arts curricula should include training in the art of eloquently asking, “Would you like fries with that?” Career-oriented students (and parents) often consider these areas of study optional or even “recreational.” David Mayo would argue that allowing yourself to pursue knowledge in the abstract is both fulfilling and valuable. There are always risks when following your heart in your choice of study, but there are always career options for those who apply the most important aspect of their education—creativity. Mayo will be speaking about his personal journey after earning his bachelor of fine arts degree in sculpture—and, no, he has never uttered the phrase “Would you like fries with that” professionally.
